Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Rimini, Italy.
Rimini is almost two towns in one. Located on the Adriatic coast of the Emilio-Romagna region, it is one of the largest seaside resorts in the area, with miles of sand, countless hotels and enough bars and restaurants to keep you fed and watered for weeks. If you are in town for a relaxing beach holiday, you don't need to ever stray far from the coast. However, the old town of Rimini is very beautiful and worth missing a day of sun worshipping to spend a day exploring its medieval streets and historic buildings.
The long stretch of sand on the seafront at Rimini is full of “private” beaches, most of which are attached to one hotel or another. Non-residents can use these beaches for a fee, allowing you to relax in comfort on loungers with an umbrella for when the sun gets too hot. Most provide waiter service refreshments too. There are some areas of the beach that are open to the public, but these get very busy on the weekends when Rimini is invaded by Italian families from all the surrounding cities. There are plenty of guesthouses to suit all budgets on the streets just behind the beach, and reservations are not necessary even in the height of summer. A bus runs along the main coast road, from the centre to the far reaches of the private beaches, or you can hire bicycles to get you from one end of the promenade to the other. Rimini doesn't just offer miles of beaches, however, as visitors can also enjoy mini golf, an aquarium with dolphin shows, amusement arcades and the “Italian in Miniature” attraction; a model village featuring many of the country's most famous attractions.
If you can drag yourself away from the beach for a day, or if you are unlucky enough to have a cloudy day, then take the bus into the city centre and spend a few hours exploring Rimini's old town. The town is home to some impressive Roman structures, including the Arch of Augustus Bridge.
Another Roman bridge on the other side of town, the Bridge of Tiberius is still open to traffic. The remains of prosperous Roman's house was discovered under a public park in the 1980s, complete with mosaic decorations and specialised tools that suggest the resident was a doctor. More recent structures include the Malatesta Temple, built for the ruling Malatesta family during the Renaissance and the impressive fountain in the city's main Piazza Cavour. Movie buffs should make a beeline for the Fellini Museum, dedicated to the famous Italian director who was born and brought up in Rimini and used his childhood in the town to shape many of his films.
